Yahoo Sends Directions to Phones Via SMS
Yahoo! announced today that consumers can go to Yahoo! Maps and click the “Send to Phone” link on the driving directions page to send the full, step-by-step directions directly to their phone.
After sending the driving directions to their phone, consumers receive a message with a link taking them directly to the full turn-by-turn driving directions. This new functionally builds on the successful implementation of the “Send to Phone” feature in Yahoo! Local for contact information and addresses for local businesses, as well as the launch of Yahoo! Search for Mobile across several major U.S. carriers late last year.
This new service is available across most major wireless carriers - Cingular/AT&T Wireless, Sprint/Nextel and T-Mobile, at no charge for consumers. However, carriers may charge fees based on consumers’ data plans. More info on how the service works is here.
